Stay Relevant. Stay Connected.
SEA is the professional association for career leaders across the federal government. SEA believes that senior career leaders are an untapped resource and should be connected and empowered to improve the functioning of government, solve critical national challenges, and enhance the public’s trust in the Federal government.
SEA supports the SES, and those in the leadership pipeline, by providing the tools, trainings and connections they need to meet the challenges in a rapidly changing society. Through strategic connections, insight into cutting-edge practices and resources, career advancement tools, and thought leadership, SEA helps its members build a “Leadership Profession” within the federal government to ensure that the experience of senior career leaders is used in new ways to promote a stronger and more effective government.
SEA provides a variety of services for members. But, at the end of the day, SEA is a way for leaders across government to support each other, engage on a broad set of issues, and to further the mission of public service now and for the future.
